Nice bass for the money

23.11.2015
I was not sure what to expect from a budget bass, but having read reviews of other HB basses (mostly good), I decided to take a chance. On arrival I carefully looked it over for damage and not a mark found. I then looked at the build quality mindful of what others had remarked on the HB brand, and found no real problems considering its price tag. You really need to look very close and be very critical to find fault. I am very happy with the quality. The only thing I have done is finish the fret ends a little better and only took 10 minutes to do. The neck feels very chunky and is 2mm thicker than my Fender P but I soon got used to it and my hands are on the small side too. It is a bit narrow up at the body end for my liking. I had to adjust the truss rod a little but nothing to worry about, and not at all unusual. All the frets were fine. Output from the two Wilkinson pickups was huge and had to back off the volume but the split coil 5 way switching works well as does the 3 band EQ. No balance but have not found that a problem. A bit more hum than expensive bass's but not excessive when some top end is taken off. This is a big bass and youngsters might struggle but I am not that big myself and manage fine. You will need a big bag or case too (won,t fit any of mine). A novice may find a thinner neck better for them than this one. Over all I am very happy with this bass and is well worth the money. I play in a band with a Fender P and Schecter Riot, and got this to re string B,E,A,D for those "odd" numbers. "Job done"

A priceless quality / price ratio!

03.09.2015
Hello everybody

I order this bass with a lot of apprehension regarding the quality Despite that after a week of use I sold my other basses

Concerning the bass here some info:

Components / lutherie / finishes:
+ A very good finish (admitted a pickguard a little rough in the cutout)
+ A rather honeyburst color of the most beautiful effect
+ A comfortable handle with good access to treble
+ Mechanics make their taff
+ Wilkinson pickups of good quality
+ Height of strings / settings Ok
+ A jack and keys allen surely thomann watch over us!
+ A bridge closer to the neck (Why not? ^^) it does not change that playability and even this way it is easier to place mute palms in a piece.
- Height Micros (Tastes and colors that this discusses ^^)
- Slightly heavy overall (Provide a slightly wider strap)
- Strings pulling 50-110 a bit too big in my opinion, a 45-100 is enough for the use of the bass at full potential.

Sound / Styles / Usage /

+ The active preamp gives satisfaction for what is to sculpt the sound in general (I would do an upgrade) for now it will suffice coupled with a preamp / di from MXR
+ With the switch we can look for a typed vintage (pbass) to modern very quickly
- Little malus in terms of parasitic noise the insulation have to do it ourselves (Logic do not ask to have the butter silver butter and what follows for that price .. no but !: x )
+ Me fits perfectly into the styles played (Rock, Funk, Reggae) on the finger and slap of the old tracks ranging from the maytals, Jaco pastorius, Geddy lee and larry graham to the newest RHCP Incubus Passafire Jamiroquaï.
+ J? Imagine that playing plectrum must be possible on another side who would play the pick on a bass? who ? say it to me !? (Joke naturally I respect the users of shovels)

Delivery :

+ Fast from thomann
- a bit galley on behalf of UPS (blocked because of a number of appart absent a phone call that would kill them?)
+ Arrived in good condition well with plenty of plastic and polystyrene reinforcements with that I have enough to sell and sent by mail my other basses, what else?

Conclusion:
I have totally confidence in thoman and the quality of the deluxe series from harley benton. For me it totally crushes the mid-range bass competition (400? / 1000?) I do not see any reason for it to pass from this kind of furious follies at this price ... if you want more, with a small Upgrade of the families (Preamp / Micros / Isolation) one can think that it attacks even the high end! (With exaggeration all the same ^^)
(To see soon in reedite of this comment I hold you to the juice!)
